Congratulations to all post 16 students who today received their post 16 results. All our students did incredibly well but 2 students in particular deserve special mention. Aminah Shafiq and Ellen Bramley achieved A grades in all their subjects which included an A* for Aminah in English Literature.

Year 12 students studying Film Studies, English Literature and History were given the opportunity to visit the Robinson Library at Newcastle University last week. The students were given a tour of the library and attended a tutorial explaining how to use the library’s resources. They then had the rest of the day to work in the library accessing the vast array of resources at their disposal to help them to prepare for their work in year 13. All of the students were fantastic and really made the most of this great opportunity.
We have all had a great day celebrating all the hard work and welcoming the summer break. Here are some photos that show the fun that was had at our great British BBQ.
On Wednesday the 12 July and Friday 14 July, 2 classes went out to do field work as part of their GCSE Geography course. The plan was to experience as many different techniques as possible whilst on the Blyth beach and dunes. The students measured the gradient of the beach and also the height of the beach against the groynes to assess the effectiveness of these structures at trapping sand and so in protecting the coast. Later the students used a float to track the direction and speed of longshore drift and they surveyed sediment size and shape all along the beach to see if the waves were moving stones along it.
Some photos from the 6th form leavers last Friday. A direct link to the photos can be found here:
On Sunday 2 July 24 students and 3 members of staff had an early start setting off at 5am. They were about to embark on a once in a life time opportunity where they would be flag bearing in a Women’s World Cup cricket match between India and Pakistan.
We arrived at Derbyshire County Cricket club at 8.30am where the students had to practise the flag bearing ceremony. An extra pressure for our students was the flags were not permitted to touch the floor due to the two countries religion.
The students even made it on to the TV as this match was televised live on Sky Sports 2, enabling millions of people to watch the match.
During the interval the students took part in cricket matches on the pitch showing off their skills to the sell-out crowd!
We are all very proud of our students whose behaviour was fantastic at all times.
We would like to thank all the parents who made sure their child was up and at school on time and to the KEY organisation who provided a small grant of £500 which paid towards the cost of the transport and provided everyone with refreshments throughout the day.
